Chapter 1:

The waves were no longer lapping at the side of the dingy as it had been earlier in the day before the arrival of the raging tempest. The wooden dingy, crafted from a totara tree from back home and emblazoned with words and symbols of a now lost language, had been easily carving through the tranquil seas until the weather changed for the worse around midday.
